I was considering SCEA (or OCMJEA as Oracle likes to call it), but as i have found out - Oracle has made it way too expensive now to even consider it. Besides - I don't think any of those courses add any value to me. So what are the alternative, reputed architect certificates that one can consider? I am not keen on product specific certificates such as the ones IBM offers?

Any other internationally respected architect certification that you can recommend?

TIA,
- Manish

The only thing that comes to my mind is IBM's UML exams - I think there are 3 or 4 levels and I don't think this is linked to their products. I also remember it covers UML + OOAD.

Haven't heard of it before! Could you please let me know more about it? Especially, its reputation in the industry, difficulty level & requirements.

I do not know a lot about TOGAF. TOGAF certification was an alternative certification that people were suggesting when I was deciding whether or not to get OCMJEA certified.
OCMJEA is a certification which is mostly centred around architecting your solution around JEE though they do claim that it does not need to be.
In contrast, TOGAF is a generic enterprise architectural approach not specific to a technology. You can find out more about TOGAF here
Its definitely not like comparing apple to apple. But you know, if architect certification is what one is interested in then....
I opted for OCMJEA just because I am a JEE professional and I still had time before the useless mandatory training came into effect.

Here are some informative discussions on architect certifications -

Hope that helps...

Thanks a lot, but both discussions look bit dated! I mean first one is 208 thread & second one is 2010. Is it still true that TOGAF is valid only for 2 years? They seem to have 2 step process now.
